30. I attended Merrimack College for two years, majoring in Sociology.

My geology professor always made fun of sociology majors. "The only thing I learned in sociology is it's bad to be poor, and I already knew that!" Heh.

64. Once I got a line drive in the eye...OUCH.

Big ouch! I thought Adam's line drive to my chin was bad. You could see the imprint of the baseball stitching for a few days.

I completely understand what you're talking about. (Well, except the medical miracles of course.) We've had religious discussions before...let's talk about this Tuesday, I think it's so interesting.

My mother wishes you were her daughter instead of me...high school was not a fun time for our relationship!

Get a boxer! They are seriously the best dogs...so good with kids. Everyone and their mother has a lab or retriever...go a different route!
